With Pillars, porticos, black marble bathrooms that shine like liquorice and silk sofas striped like black and white mint humbugs, this beautiful 5* hotel is a box of delights, with every era represented- stone walls, Victorian tiles, Art Deco furniture, medieval tapestries- all unified by excellent service and every 21st century comfort. Its 49 rooms spread across 9 listed historic buildings, all panelled decorated and embellished with traditional Swiss craftsmanship.
But then there are the state of the art bathrooms, the free wifi, the Bang & Olufsen Tvs and the fitness room. There’s a rooftop terrace with views over to St Pieterkirke, a restaurant, a bar with live jazz - and very usefully for drivers, there is also onsite parking. It’s a two minute walk, too, from Banhofstrasse- the most luxurious street in Europe.
